Thoughts ?

Can't see NJ doing this. Zacha has started to show improvement. He would have easily been a 20/ 20+ in a full season last year.

With familiar faces in vesey, graves, johnsson, gauthier and bernier niw might be a good time for jersey to get the player they picked in the first place. Yes, kerfoot has a huge rivalry with Princeton from his harvard days but unlike my dad I think That had no baring on why he chose Colorado instead of New Jersey.

Jersey drafted him fresh off their cup final appearance. Kerfoot and every team knew he was going to Harvard but jersey used the last pick in 5th round on him knowing it would be 4 years minimum before they get him they knew he could be a future center for them and knew he was a smart guy.

The next 5 years jersey plummet so bad that when kerfoot was ready to sign they just drafted center nico hischier. They also had zacha and Macleod as up and comers and had Henrique and zajac as veteran centers while on July 1st just signed big Boyle to a 2 year deal so that position was a tad crowded. Colorado had mackinnon and duchene but after them only soderberg and Wilson as centers and Colorado concentrated on defence in 2017 draft and more wingers in recent drafts before that. In fact Colorado only had one good prospect at time at center in jost who was much like kerfoot skipping whl and playing college but only stayed in school 1 year. Kerfoot family being close to Barrie family also helped this decision.

Kerfoot chooses Colorado who also offered more bonus money than jersey. He cracks their lineup and gets second line wing until duchene is dealt 14 games in then becomes the 2nd line center. Where in jersey hischier gets 1st line. Henrique Zajac battle for 2nd line role. Zacha battle with coleman for 3rd line center spots and Boyle is fixed as 4th line center. Heck 24 games in jersey dealt Henrique for vatanen just so zacha and coleman can flip flop at center on 3rr line. Add in Macleod for future and kerfoot made right choice.

Ok now about deal. I think you’re target is great. I mean he didn’t grow up with kampf or Kase or play on he league games with them. However, he played internationally with Kase on 3 occasions and 2 with kampf. They also competed against each other a lot as kids more Kase than kampf due to age but all 3 I’m sure know each other good enough.

What a perfect 3rd czeching line. Pardon the pun. Umm, actually no it’s perfect,

Let’s make the deal bigger just for fun. Your deal is fine I’m just in a mood to add.

Colton White (a Dubas guy)
Shakir mukhamadullin ( amirov body guard)

Nick abruzzese
Joe Fusco
2023 2nd rounder

Yeah doubt it but fun

MacLeod can be added instead of zacha and maybe now it’s close. Either or I like the thinking on a deal for kerfoot to jersey.

So I was unsure about kerfoot going back to jersey, but after Andersen went back to Carolina I’m more inclined to think jersey at least has interest in kerfoot.

5.) 18 Oct 2021 17:43:21
Maybe I'm wrong and they would do it. But Zacha is a former 6th overall,24, big, strong, can play PP and PK and just had 35 pts in 50 games on a lower end team. Sorry, I just don't see it.

Florida Trades

Toronto Trades

Florida gets better depth on Defense.

Toronto gets a tough Defenceman which they need.

Thoughts ?

I think Manson from the ducks is a better target.

2.) 14 Oct 2021 19:09:55
Personally I say no to this. Holl is a good player on a good contract. Assuming he won’t ask for a massive raise, we need to keep him around.

3.) 14 Oct 2021 20:01:42
I'd pass on this one.

4.) 14 Oct 2021 20:04:35
Gudas is a 6d option so why are giving up a 5 and a 6 for him? After holls atrocious 2 on 1 last night I’ve relegated him from top 4.

5.) 14 Oct 2021 21:34:00
@Randy, lol. I think Holl had a solid game last night.

6.) 16 Oct 2021 02:02:53
Please no!

Devils Trade
4th Round Pick 2022*

Leafs Trade

*NJ have there own plus both Edmonton and Columbus's 4th Round Picks in The 2022 Draft, The Devils get to choose which 4th Rounder Toronto gets when The 2021/22 Season is over.

I yesterday posted a similar type trade proposal and have tweeked it some to make it more of a believable proposal.
I do believe this proposal is a very fair trade and what each Team would be looking at before the puck drops to start the new NHL Season.

Thoughts ?

Here is my take. Severson is an upgrade on Holl, but costs twice the cap hit. Holl and Severson are both signed for two more seasons. Rielly is the best player in the deal. Engvall is worth a 5th or 6th round pick. So basically it is Severson for Rielly and Holl with the Devils giving us a 4th and getting a 5th or 6th back. If Rielly re-signs, it's a steal for the Devils. To me, remove Holl and the Devil's give a conditional 1st if Rielly re-signs.
So Severson and a 4th (their choice), a conditional 1st (if Rielly re-signs) for Rielly and Engvall.

Leafs give up 2 defensemen to get one?
Leafs are already looking at a 3rd pairing of Sandin (a virtual rookie and Dermot) so giving up Holl would leave them seriously shorthanded.
Not sure that’s a good idea.
Maybe Rielly for Severson (with Brodie moving back to the Leafs side to pair with Severson) and a 4th but including Holl and Engvall would make this a definite no for me.

3.) 08 Oct 2021 02:13:00
Why would Leafs give up two defensemen to acquire one when Rielly is already the best player in the deal.

Devils Trade
3rd Round Pick 2022

Leafs Trade

New Jersey is looking to turn the corner this season, the signing of Hamilton says that, adding a true Top 2 Defenceman in Rielly, a very solid Defenceman in Holl and adding Mikheyev and Engvall as well makes them better with this trade off proposal.

Toronto is at that point do they look to trade a key piece in Rielly?
I believe because of Cap and Rielly and Mikheyev being UFAS after this season they do, and I like opening the door for both Sandin and Liljegren to play fulltime in The NHL as well as Dermott to play more mins as well, Wood would be a Great LWinger for Kampf and Kase as a 3rd line shutdown line.

Thoughts ?


1.) 04 Oct 2021 14:39:55
This is a no from me.

2.) 04 Oct 2021 14:52:28
Remove Holl from the deal and I think value is closer.

3.) 05 Oct 2021 05:39:43
Not sure I understand the logic behind Leafs giving up 4 players for Severson and Woods when NJ is getting the best player (Rielly) in the deal.
A 3rd round pick does not come close to evening up the deal.

Toronto Trades

Washington Trades

*Capitals retain 800k each year of Kuznetsov's remaining contract.

Yes Rielly and Mikheyev will both be UFAs after this season but Washington is in the win this year position, and adding a Top 2 Defenceman, a good 2way Centre and an underated Winger with speed plus solve the Kuznetsov issue, I believe Washington would jump on this proposal.

The Leafs solve a few problems, Cap Space to just get them at the limit with this proposal, Rielly and Mikheyev probably walk after this season one because of contract the other saying he wanted out and to be traded, yes they weaken there Defence but this opens the door to play both Sandin and Liljegren fulltime and give Dermott more playing time, plus Kuznetsov is a huge upgrade at Centre over Kerfoot.

Thoughts ?

Actually not a bad trade at all.
